Mission

Holley's Hopping Habitat is the only 501(c)(3) non-profit rabbit-only facility in Northwest Louisiana that provides intake services for unwanted and neglected pet rabbits, adoption services for those looking to add a pet rabbit to their home, and free education to everyone interested in learning more about pet rabbits.

Holley's Hopping Habitat is a shelter founded on the principals that all ages (young and old) can learn about rabbits and how wonderful they are as pets. We strive to find all rabbits home and we work to educate the public on being responsible pet owners.

Holley's Hopping Habitat is a no-kill shelter, and we are avid spay and neuter supporters!

What we aim to solve

Our shelter is currently working to get all recent intakes spayed and neutered, which will help with controlling the pet population.

We are also working to improve the interior appearance of the shelter, which will create an inviting atmosphere for our visitors.

Context Notes

Due to the extensive health issues regarding some of the rabbits that entered our facility in 2017, our adoption numbers were low. Now that all of those sweet rabbits are healthy enough for adoption.

Goals & Strategy

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goal is to make sure others are educated on the requirements for having a pet rabbit, which would eliminate pet rabbits being turned in to the shelters.

Our strategies for achieving our goals is to participate in as many public events as possible and host as many free classes in public locations as possible in order to distribute educational materials.

Our shelter has been blessed with many volunteers and sponsors who help us share the events and activities that we participate in and host. By sharing these events and activities, awareness is being presented to the public about who we are and what we do at Holley's Hopping Habitat.

We have accomplished having our intake numbers lower over the years.

Due to our being the only rabbit shelter in Northwest Louisiana, sometimes we have limited funds reserved for emergency situations.
